Nowhere else on this planet is 24,000 m² totally dedicated to a single species: the carp! If you cannot find it at Carp Den Bosch 2023, then it probably has not been invented yet! We try to fill the halls not only with products, but also with activities to keep you busy during the weekend. If you want to know what there is to do at Carp Den Bosch 2023, keep reading.

the Bait Boat Lake
At Carp Den Bosch 2023, we will of course, have our famous ‘Bait Boat Lake’. This year it is going to be bigger than ever as we have had so many bait-boat companies registering for the show. In and around the lake, you will have the opportunity to view and test the boat of your choice in the ideal place: On the water!
